Wentworth Kersey - (O)
file under: Psych-Folk / Americana / Avant Garde
for fans of: Leonard Cohen / Scott Walker / Flying Canyon / Brian Eno / Phil Spector / Ennio Morricone

Frontier man, Wentworth Kersey, is a psych-folk avant-americana artist from the plains of Colorado. Mister Kersey consists of Joe Kersey Sampson (A Dog Paloma) and Jeffrey Wentworth Stevens (George&Caplin) who met while playing "A Soundtrack for Suicide" at the Youth Hipster Halfway House during a lost era of western greatness. Wentworth Kersey was born out of the need to explore new palettes of sound within the existing structures of Americana. The result feels like a “sci-fi folk experiment” with Joe Kersey Sampson providing his folk compositions and Jeffrey Wentworth Stevens becoming a backup band with his sonic landscapes. “The resulting illusion of an entire alt-folk ensemble is seamless and captivating.” (Westword Magazine) Most recently Wentworth Kersey was honored by The Denver Post as #1 "Artist you may not know yet, but will."

Check out the reviews below:

"an ideal soundtrack to the disintegration of the American Dream. The music on their EP is the sound of dreams deferred and lessons learned. Acoustic guitar, electronic atmospherics, and world-weary vocals create a certain windswept beauty that meshes well with these downtrodden economic times. This eminently listenable release provides a compelling reason to anticipate two follow-up EPs promised in 2009."   8 out of 10"

"Some stunning, beautiful country music…the songs are simply crafted but swathed in a rich psychey soundscape. Far from swamping the country goodness, the extra layers add a whole new dimension to the songs, making them extraordinary. It’s very cleverly done - velvety and honest at the same time. Indeed, fans of good music everywhere should be legging it over to the Plastic Sound Supply site to buy a copy of the album"

"..while it still can be described within the range of new Americana, but then it still sounds different to any other album I have heard before that I would describe as being associated with this style. A very strong debut. Highly recommended."

"Psych-folk experimentalists, sentimental old bastards, self-proclaimed grandpas Wentworth Kersey have embarked upon an exploratory sound project of utmost importance.” "This little EP and its sad melodies, simple message of heartbreak, and simmering production has slyly burrowed deep into my black little heart."

"Denver's Wentworth Kersey is like Little House on the Prairie on ludes meets 2001 (A Space Odyssey)."

"On WK’s second self-titled EP, Joe Sampson and Jeffrey Wentworth Stevens seamlessly meld haunting folk songs to minimal yet soaring samples and synthesizers. The result is a lush, lonesome vibe that sneaks up and bites you on the ass with its epic-ness."
--THE ONION (av section)

"Their sublime chemistry, however, is revelatory, sounding little like either Sampson's various folk-rock projects or Stevens' electro-dappled George&Caplin. On the second in a series of three EPs, the duo oozes a gentle sophistication and patient melodicism that sets it apart."

Computer World (live)

Our own CacheFlowe recently played the Westword Music Showcase in Denver, CO, and performed a dubsteppy cover of Kraftwerk's "Computer World" that he wrote with his friend The Tickler. They're working on a Kraftwerk cover EP and should be finishing it in the coming months, perhaps to be released on PSS.
